Commagene - A settlement in Syria
Commagene was the most northerly district of Syria, bordering upon Cilicia. It became a separate kingdom in the second century BC.

In 17 when Antiochus III of Commagene died, Emperor Tiberius annexed Commagene to the province of Syria. According to Josephus, this move was supported by the local nobility but opposed by the mass of the common people, who preferred to remain under their kings as before; Tacitus, on the other hand, states that "most preferred Roman, but others royal rule".
